Vulgar-2000-movie-Bryan-Johnson-4

SYNOPSIS:

A man who performs as a children’s birthday party clown tries to piece his life back together after being gang-raped.

REVIEW:

For a movie that has such a cool intro – credits roll over a disembodied clown nose, while subtle, creepy music plays under the visuals, making you think of a number of 1980’s slasher classics – Vulgar certainly is a clunker. Think Clerks, with all the ridiculous dialogue and pseudo-edgy attempts … Continue reading
